SANTA FE — Today, the House of Representatives passed Senate Bill 71, sponsored by Senator Craig Brandt (R-Rio Rancho), with unanimous, bipartisan support. Senate Bill 71, also known as “Glory's Law,” would prohibit discrimination against transplant recipients based solely on their physical or mental disability.
Senator Brandt issued the following statement regarding the passage of his bill:
“Thank you to the House of Representatives who saw the importance of this bill for those living with mental or physical disabilities. Glory, a constituent of mine with down syndrome, and the thousands like her deserve the same chance at a full life as the rest of us. Every life deserves equal treatment under the law and I hope the Governor will sign this bill quickly.”
Senate Bill 71 will now head to the Governor for her consideration.
